Re: Update: Coilovers for WK

Im sorry but I have no idea why it takes so long to develope a coilover set-up for any car. I have a Jeggs catalog i look thru daily while im in my reading room, aka bathroom. They have all types of coilovers, with all different end type fittings, different compression/load ratings, and different lengths. If I had a welder and some practice on it I would be in my basement making some to fit. I would think a custom shop can whip them up asap.

Re: Update: Coilovers for WK

So you all have a update on whats's going on with this project, these are the email conversations I have been having with Nick at Ksport. If you all are really down and are patiently waiting for these coilovers to come out, then flood the crap out of Ksport so they can see how serious we all are.



Yo Nick,
Man I have a lot of people that I told on StreetJeeps.net or JeepGarage.org over the past couple months that are patiently awaiting for these coilovers to come out. It's not like I am just emailing and asking just for myself, it's for a crap load of Jeep Tuners that are wondering why it takes so long to just customize some good coilovers. Not only would it be the first of it's kind, but I can almost guarantee a crap load of Jeep tuners will be spending mad cash for a set of these.
I myself only have 3 major mods left to do on my Jeep so I can put my Jeep back into a car show: RamMedic Hood, Back Viper Rims and your Ksport Coilovers.
Soooo. Does this help or do you need more proof that there are hella owners that are down to spend a little dough to drop our Jeeps 2-3 inches?
We all are getting restless.

Jacob

we have not yet, but we have a few dealers looking to get them made. If they do go through with ordering them we should have them in about a month or so.

Hello,
I have heard through a couple Jeep Grand Cherokee forums that you guys have produced a coilover suspension kit for our 2005-2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee's. Is this true?? Because if it is, I am highly interested in making a future purchase.
Just a little info on my Jeep.....

A customized 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, 4x4, 4.7L V8

Thank you

Re: Update: Coilovers for WK

Most recent email from Nick:

I understand completley, we have actually sold over ten kits so far so we are producing the kit but we need to make sure its a perfect kit before releasing it. We are working as fast as possible to get it completed, but it is a bit complex on this car and this is the likely reason nobody else makes them for the jeep.
